Clefs and finding your part

  1. 1. Clefs and Finding Yours
  2. 2. The Different Clefs ● The two clefs you should know are: – The Treble or G Clef – The Bass or F Clef
  3. 3. Treble Clef ● The Treble Clef looks like a fancy G script. ● In standard notation, it sits with the circle surrounding the second line from the bottom of the staff. ● The second line of this staff is then called G (hence it's second name: G Clef)
  4. 4. Bass Clef ● The Bass Cleff looks like backwards C. ● In standard notation, it sits with the dot on the second line from the top of the staff. ● The second line from the top of this staff is then called F (hence it's second name: F Clef)
  5. 5. Grand Staff ● In order to cover all the notes (bass and treble) we can create what is called the Grand Staff. ● Note that the line added in the middle is shared by both the top and bottom staff. ● The middle note is called “Middle C”
  6. 6. Tenor Clef ● The Tenor Clef is exactly like the Treble Clef accept it has an 8 below it. ● The 8 indicates all notes are played an octave below the treble cleff ● The second line from the bottom of this staff is still called G but an octave below.
  7. 7. Parts ● In SATB Music, the parts are usually separated out with individal lines. ● Here we see that Alto's and Soprano's have a Treble Clef, Tenors have a Tenor Clef and Basses have a Bass Clef
  8. 8. Parts (continued.) ● In condensed choir staff, Soprano's and Altos are on the top line, Tenors and Basses are on the bottom. ● The stems indicate which voice sings which part: Sopranos have stems going up; Altos going down; Tenors going up; Basses going down. Soprano Alto Tenor Bass
